You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

More Johnny For July

Here comes Johnny Appleseed, the star of his very own and very wonderful Little Golden Book. One of Walt Disney's most charming and most underrated animated productions, "Johnny Appleseed" (from Melody Time, 1948) inspired this priceless Little Golden Book (one of the earliest in that timeless series, it was published in 1949), an engaging adaption of Walt's animated version of the legends of John Chapman, focusing on Mr. Appleseed's experiences with the" forest folk", the woodland creatures who help him plant apple trees throughout the frontier. Illustrated by Tom Parmalee, this Golden volume is one more way the delights of Walt Disney's Johnny Appleseed, like a red crispy apple, are ours to enjoy.
